Check in services if ftp services is started.

at a command prompt to check ftp is running and working type

telnet 127.0.0.1 21

make sure you firewall is okay, or add a ftp 21 tcp rule to allow ftp traffic.

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
you may have to add Telnet client as a feature as well, it's not installed by default.

Microsoft FTP Service. Check it's started.

in services, type services.msc in the start bar

okay, you need to select Control Panel, Administrative Tools.

you may need to switch to View all control panel items from the View by menu at the top right in your control panel window.

In the Administrative Tools windows, locate "Internet Information Services Manager" and click on it.

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
okay, we need to do some setup now.

you need to create, a folder on your hard drive where the root of the ftp site will be located.

e.g.

1. create a folder called for example c:\test
2. On the far right you have an Actions Box
3. Select Add ftp site
4. Specify a ftp site name
5. select the folder you created in 1 above
6. Followed by Next
7. Accept the defaults on this page but change to No SSL.
8. for test purposes on the next Page Select Anonymous
9. Select the drop down bar and select All Anonymous users.
10. Seledct Read and Write
11. Click Finish.
12. You have created your first ftp anonymous site.

now using telnet 127.0.0.1 21 (it should annouce itself as Microsoft FTP Server)

use a ftp client and test

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
in filezilla, use the loopback ip address, 127.0.0.1 port 21, with username anonymous, and use email address as password.

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
your customer needs to have filezilla, they need to know your IP address on the Internet, you have to alter settings on your router, to port forward port 21 to this machine. (and just tell them to access anonymous). and then stop ftp or remove port foward rule on your router.

this setup is another question.
